"It helps us out, but those guys work really hard," the Bears receiver said Thursday at Halas Hall. "To lose a game like that that's tough. I have some guys on that (Packers) team that I went to college and played with. So I feel for them. But we have to move forward."
"Coach (Rob) Ryan (Cowboys defensive coordinator) has those guys really playing well," Marshall said. "They have some young corners that play well. They are a little banged up, but with the scheme he has, man, he really put guys in position to make plans." Marshall has a team-high 214 receiving yards and 16 catches through the first three games. He had five catches for 71 yards in Sunday's victory over the Rams.
Asked about the danger of possibly targeting Marshall too much when he is double-covered, quarterback Jay Cutler responded in an irritated manner.
"It depends on what coverage there are a lot of variables," he said. "You can't just make a vague statement: ' If they're giving him extra attention can you go to him?' Depends on what route it is, what coverage it is, what's the down and distance. There are a lot of things that go into it."
Marshall also addressed the public spat between him and former NFL defensive lineman Warren Sapp, who now works for NFL Network.
"That thing started like a year ago," Marshall said. "It was actually Sterling Sharpe who made a comment and I made a comment back last year. It took me by surprise last year"
Marshall has posted two videos online in response to Sapp calling him a "retard" in reference to respecting former players such as Sharpe on a radio program.
One video showed Marshall driving a car and criticizing Sapp for filing for bankruptcy and being divorced.
"I apologized to Warren Sapp for saying that publicly," Marshall said. "I meant everything I said, but where I am at in my life I need to learn from that and keep that privately ... we'll both learn from this and be better men," he said.
